    I Just Don't Know...

    I was completely unprepared to be single again. I was with the girl I really expected to spend the rest of my life with. So yeah it killed me when it ended out of the blue. However, it has been more fun than I've had in years to see all my friends that I never saw and doing...

    I've been single all of my life. Sometimes I don't like it, sometimes I do. The good thing is, I don't get jealous when I see couples anymore. Maybe I know too much about human nature to care. Hmm...

    Screw Dating

    What happened to the days I was single and could care less? What happened to the days when I was single, didn't care, and men flocked to me ANYWAY?! I don't know. All I know now is that now that I'm single, I feel only half as good without a boyfriend. Since my break up, which...

    Conflicted

    I feel like my last relationship messed me up emotionally for a while. On one hand, I am wary of losing control of my emotions again. Then again, I really would like to experience a committed long-term relationship. Maybe it is possible to be with someone and not break up?
